Light My Fire

Id have to say the evening I captured this amongst many was probably the highlight of my 2 week California trip.
When this all started up, hearing people up above me out of sight cheering, I couldnt help but smile. Often I’ve been in locations by myself & swearing or giggling like a little kid as the light go’s off, but hearing a whole load of people & many just watching not photographing was something to remember.
If I do ever return to Yosemite, ill certainly return to this little location I discovered hidden out of sight.

On a side note I should probably get my head checked based on how the shitty dynamic pulse punishes regular posters.Whats the point of it all?

Namibia Untamed
Northern Lights Finale – With Arild Heitmann
Processing Tutorial Videos
Processing Instruction via Skype

As my whirlwind year of 2015 rapidly comes to a close, I’ve already got my sights set on 2016. Big trips back to Norway with my homies Arild and Stian of LofotenTours, two back to back trips to Namibia to work with the Squiver team, Iceland with my wife and great friends, and Alaska for some off-roading adventure. It’s going to be a fantastic year, but the thing I’m stoked on most isn’t the locations… it’s the people I get to share them with. I get just as (if not more) excited about spending the time with friends as I do the actual shooting.

Marcel Van Oosten was kind enough to honor me with the privilege to lead a tour to Namibia for him next year… I’m guaranteeing it will be epic. Also my good friend Arild Heitmann and I will be leading another crazy tour next March to shoot the Lofoten Islands… it’s always a successful trip. Check out the links above for all the info you need!

Happy Holidays everyone.

A Forgotten Valley by VictorCarreiro

This reservoir in Yosemite National Park used to be a beautiful valley inhabited by Native Americans before it was turned into what it is today. Its grandeur was said to have rivaled Yosemite Valley. It’s still beautiful, but I would have loved to have been on the valley floor looking up at those huge granite walls. This is one exposure taken about a half hour before sunset.

Taft Point at Sunset by brianfulda

Just another beautiful summer day in Yosemite. It’s almost hard to take a bad photograph here. My girlfriend was kind enough to walk out on the ledge for me. I gave her a thumbs up when I was done, making sure not to interrupt the serene silence.

Sunrays from Stetind by AlexNail

Summer travels are now over for me, but they ended with a bang. After a weeklong workshop in Lofoten of mostly cloudy skies I took one of the clients, Marie, on an extra day hiking up Norway’s national mountain, Stetind.
We reached the cloud level at around 1000m and debated heading for the presummit, 300m above us. In the end we decided to hang around and wait.. As snow started to fall sunrays burst through the cloud and we raced downhill to get to clearer air. It was one of the best light shows of my life.
If you’d like to join me on an adventure next year I will be putting up my workshops in the next month or so. You can sign up to the mailing list here:

Philadelphia City Hall by Rich_Devant

I shot this last year in downtown Philadelphia. This building , known as city hall , has been the world’s tallest masonry building at 548 ft (167 m), since at least the 1953 collapse of the pinnacle of the Mole Antonelliana in Turin.
